ART_DECO saidThis isn't a virus, and it's not about Macs. It's about a security weakness in Internet wireless transmissions from Apple mobile devices, like iPhones and iPads.
lol that's even worse
A security weakness basically is an open door for hackers to go through. Even more conveniently it is an "Internet wireless transmissions" flaw. So make sure to update your fapple devices.
Exactly. Which means you must be using a WiFi network shared by others. As opposed to viruses that come hidden in emails and other programs.
So far there doesn't seem to be any reported exploitation of this weakness. And I've already got my 4 mobile Apple devices updated. Our desktop Macs don't get taken to coffee shops, so I think we're safe there, too, until the fix is provided.
Funny, in 30 years of Apple computer and mobile device use I've never had a virus or hardware failure. Wish I could say the same for my partners and BFs with their PCs. Both my late & current partners had PC viruses, and their computers ultimately failed. So I bought them Macs - no more problems.
